PepsiCo is creating the Global Snacks Group (GSG), designed to drive breakthrough innovation across its leading portfolio of global snack food brands. The US-based beverages and snacks group has also announced the formation of the Power of One – Americas Council, which brings together its top food and beverage leaders to leverage the combined scale of the company’s complementary snack and beverage businesses across North, South and Central America.

 

Both initiatives will be led by John Compton, chief executive of PepsiCo Americas Foods, who will also retain responsibility for the company’s $22 billion snack and food business in the Americas.
